This program will prepare students to sit for the certification exam offered by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board to become a Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT). The program consists of 208 hours of online lecture and lab instruction. Students must register in PHRA1013 Community Pharmacy Practice, PHRA1008 Pharmacy Insurance Customer Service, PHRA1009 Pharmacy Mathematics, and PHRA1005 Drug Classifications upon program entry.
